Aruba Resort reveals largest art installation in the Caribbean
The largest interactive art installation by U.S. based artists, Emily Strauss, Victoria Przetak, Francesca Quintano and Tim Rowan of Mural Painters, Inc. in the Caribbean will be installed at Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino this December. The five-story mural will be the centerpiece of the luxury resort’s atrium in the Marina Hotel, complementing Renaissance Aruba’s complete redesign and renovation set to be completed by March 2020. The installation was commissioned by Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino and the resort’s design team including dash design and leading art consultants, Indiewalls.
The 23-foot by 58-foot hand painted mural titled “Turbulent Tranquility” was created with water-based latex paint and is accompanied by four WUXGA laser projectors with 6000 ANSI lumens and interchangeable lenses to offer guests a dynamic and transitional experience. The projectors will use light and multidimensional visual effects to activate the immersive installation through projection mapping creating an illusory dreamlike pattern.
“We wanted to introduce a timeless and unique experience with this art installation,” said Paul Gielen, General Manager at Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino. “As we continue to enhance and elevate our resort from guest rooms to programming, we had an opportunity to work with the creative visionaries at dash design and Indiewalls to create something truly new and that we believe will change the way we interact with our guests moving forward.”
The combination of technology and art will also provide a new platform for guests and groups hosting events at Renaissance Aruba. From company retreats and destination weddings to local artist exhibits and live music performances, the Atrium art piece can be activated to help enhance memorable moments taking place on property.
